I have found the source of all evil!

After spending pretty much all of today working on the car I have finally found whats causing the heatshield to rattle (i hope!). Heres the little bugger....


Its the bracket that holds the heatshield onto the manifold, right at the back of the engine bay. I'm gonna contact a Lotus dealer tomorrow and order the new one, should only be a few quid.

Heres where it lives...


It shouldn't be too hard to fit the new one, a case of undoing one of the studs thats holding the manifold onto the engine. The only thing is I'll have to remove the boot lid completely (again)...it makes it much easier to get to.

I also really need to clean the car, its filthy!
